DJ JC Green of Metal Messiah Radio‘s “Heavy Metal Thunder” show recently conducted an interview with drummer Carlos Cruz of Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
From years of relentless touring, Los WARBRINGER has become known as one of the hardest-working bands in metal, as well as a ferocious live act — and it brought all of that raw aggression into the creation of its third album, “Worlds Torn Asunder”, scheduled for a September 27 release via Century Media Records.
“Worlds Torn Asunder” was produced and mixed by Steve Evetts (SUICIDE SILENCE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SYMPHONY X), and features artwork by Dan Seagrave, who designed WARBRINGER‘s previous album cover (in addition to art for bands such as ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION and MORBID ANGEL).
Commented WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill: “The concept behind ‘Worlds Torn Asunder’ was the decline of our existing world at the hands of the human race. The artwork depicts the world literally being torn and we wanted to include the setting in the cosmos along with a darker ‘higher’ force lurking behind the shadows. We had worked with Dan Seagrave before on ‘Waking Into Nightmares’ and were very comfortable with the way he expressed himself. He’s been the artist for many bands we love and are inspired by.”
“Worlds Torn Asunder” track listing:
01. Living Weapon
02. Shattered Like Glass
03. Wake Up…Destroy
04. Future Ages Gone
06. Treacherous Tongue
07. Echoes From The Void
08. Enemies of the State
09. Behind the Veils of Night (instrumental)

Carlos Cruz (HEXEN) made his live debut with WARBRINGER in Mexico City on March 5 at the Eyescream Festival alongside ASESINO, ANVIL, TOXIC HOLOCAUST and ABIGAIL WILLIAMS.
“Waking Into Nightmares”, the sophomore album from WARBRINGER, sold around 2,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD landed at position No. 14 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
